The Wizard of Crescent Moon Mountain is a fabulous new self published book by debut secret author author Oldman Brook. It's a magical tale that will have you gripped from page 1. Even though the book is self published you can definitely compare the author to the likes of J K Rowling, Tolkien and Prachett - it really does have that much potential.
It’s all about Elven boys Finn and Beezle entering a time portal just before their race is wiped out by an otherworldly warrior and his goblin army. Travelling 3,000 years into the future and arriving in snow-filled lands, the boys are saved from the cold by two shape-shifters sent by Greybeard, the wizard of Crescent Moon Mountain.
Out of their time and depth, Finn and Beezle are enlisted to join Greybeard and his friends on a quest to save the world of Everlast from the very same otherworldly warrior. Seeing that Beezle has a talent for magic after an incident with his magical bear-headed staff, Greybeard begins to teach the little elf a few tricks. But a problem arises when Finn comes into possession of a magical weapon capable of defeating the warrior. Little does anyone know the weapon has a mind of its own and wants Beezle as its master...
Already Goodreads have given the book a 5 star rating. And ONLY 200 HARDBACKS have been printed! Brilliant news if you remember other self published books like The Highfield Mole, Eragon and Justin Thyme that now fetch thousands of pounds. So watch this space - we think this series is destined to be huge!

Light and dark fantasy crosses over into sci-fi, horror and action; add to that a wide scope of influences and the creation of a new and vivid world in Everlast, and The Wizard of Crescent Moon Mountain makes for a truly original story that will captivate children aged ten years and older. Oldman is inspired by a number of authors including J. R. R. Tolkien, J. K. Rowling and Philip Pullman.
The Wizard of Crescent Moon Mountain is very much a traditional tale and one that has a distinct child friendly, young adult edge with uncomplicated narrative and a positive, light-hearted feeling that extrudes from the pages and offers a comfortable, relaxing read… I liked the many colourful characters… they work well within the story and the interplay between them is often very effective including a pervasive humorous dynamic with a gentle humour which extends to much of the novel - at times providing a self-depreciating reflection which reminds the reader not to take things too seriously… the climax of the story is handled in a very effective manner and worth the wait.
Overall The Wizard of Crescent Moon Mountain is an enjoyable story, a traditional young adult fantasy tale full of simple, uncomplicated pleasures. SF Book Reviews (4 stars)
This has to be the most exciting book that I have encountered this year by a most accomplished author... Not wanting to put this remarkable story down I encountered the most fascinating and original storyline, being utterly unique within this genre and quite comparable to JRR Tolkien at his best or JK Rowling's Harry Potter. Magical creativity in abundance this story opens a window into your heart, igniting your imagination and letting it run with the most outlandish but also highly believable creation... with its memorable and distinctive characters to its sheer brilliance and atmosphere that takes ones breath away... I am so excited by this author and can almost certainly predict great things to come, as even the thought of turning this tale into a film and placing it on the big screen has crossed my mind... For those readers who devoured JK Rowling's highly commended series and who enjoys a story with all the elements of a great and memorable fantasy fictional tale, then look no further as here is a novel which will delight many readers. The fact that this also had the most dramatic climax and ended on a spine-chilling cliffhanger made it all the more brilliant... A highly enjoyable and enthralling read that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat throughout... With an absorbing plot that will keep you guessing, to remarkable and distinctive characters that you will fall in love with. This has to be my book of the year.
